(9th Annual) Pacific Coast Children's Writers Workshop

Looking for something different in a fiction writing workshop? Perhaps it’s time for agent or editor feedback on your entire novel manuscript. Or maybe you’re ready for multiple professional critiques on your all-important beginning. If so, consider our beachfront seminar for 14 advanced and/or published novelists.

CONVENES: October 7-9, 2011 near Santa Cruz, CA.

CONTENT: Theme is “Envision and Edit Your Story with the Pros.” In-depth novel-crafting sessions; master classes with team-taught, open-clinic critiques of opening chapters, synopses, and full-length manuscripts. Savvy teens also provide target-reader feedback.

FACULTY: Susan Van Metre, Abrams/Amulet VP and Publisher (and New School MFA instructor); agent Joan Slattery of Pippin Properties, former Knopf senior executive editor.

DEADLINES: Priority reg. May 15; application May 25; manuscripts June 25. Open until filled.

FEES: Starts at $769, including lodging; additional fee for whole-novel critiques, including two faculty-mentor consults. For details, faculty interviews, and contact info visit their website.
